Week 9-15: Beautiful My Monster

Strange craving to watch Creature from the Black Lagoon last week…even stranger was his graceful swimming moves! He was ridiculously obsessed with Kay + a total stalking creepo the entire movie. Beautiful costume though.

After the “matchbox made into a bedroom” prompt I became infatuated with tiny houses and have been playing around with diormmas ever since. Extra inspired after seeing teeny architectural models at Cooper Hewitt + the work of Talwst at Spring/Break Art Show. More three-dimensional art to come.

LET HER EAT CAKE!

My birthday was a bit of a wash; I had a fever on the day-of but still managed to eat cake through my tears.

Week 8: Godzilla + Things

I just added 642 Tiny Things To Draw into the #sketchbook365 mix; it’s the perfect miniature version for traveling. Also, how funny would Godzilla be in a pair of little heeled boots?

Week 6 & 7: Playing House

Home is abstract idea. It's a setting; a state of mind. (George Carlin)

Playing a little #sketchbook365 catchup (aka. drawings created in-between paying gigs). There have been requests for prints, which is exciting and definitely coming soon! I was having fun with this theme; perhaps I spend too much time on Pinterest, or maybe it’s because I have been rearranging my home office (yet again) and editing down to the bare minimum where space is limited. It could even be that I am missing my Apartment Therapy work (had to take a hiatus to focus on art). Either way, I know home is wherever you make it, so why not make it beautiful?

Week 5: Do You Believe in Magic?

Rabbits are guides into the shadow world, where our personal fears lie.

“When the rabbit shows up it is time to examine those deep reflexive fears that hold you back from growing. Do you keep bounding for the safety of your old patterns every time something new or challenging presents itself? If the answer is yes, the rabbit asks you to face your fears with compassion for yourself. You must accept that it is part of human nature to feel fear at times, but also believe that our fears need not paralyze our growth and movement.”–Ina Woolcott
